SEATTLE —

New Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge has filled out his coaching staff by hiring former Yankees hitting coach Chris Chambliss and longtime Giants infielder Robby Thompson.

Wedge made the announcements on Thursday. Thompson will be the Mariners' bench coach and responsible for infield instruction. Chambliss will be Seattle's hitting coach.

Two coaches will return from Seattle's previous staff. Carl Willis, who was Seattle's pitching coach the final two months of last season, will continue in that role under Wedge. Mike Brumley will coach first base and be the Mariners' outfield/baserunning instructor.

Rounding out Seattle's staff is Jeff Datz (third base), Jamie Navarro (bullpen) and Jason Phillips (bullpen catcher).
